"We have no intention to meet with the USA side during the stay in South Korea", a Foreign Ministry official was quoted as saying by the North's official news agency the day Mr Pence arrived in South Korea.

North Korea has not carried out any weapons tests since it shot off its biggest intercontinental ballistic missile last November. However, South Korea made a decision to accept the North's Olympics delegations for the good of the Games, a presidential official in Seoul said on condition of anonymity.
Vice President Mike Pence was present at the Games' opening ceremony and was scheduled to meet with Kim Yo-jong before North Korea backed out.
A South Korean government official said 240 million won (S$293,250) had been spent on Ms Kim and her entourage during their visit.
North Korea's attendance at the Winter Olympics was seen as a major thaw in consistently tense relations on the Korean peninsula. Yet for months the Trump administration had offered inconsistent messages about what conditions would be needed for a tete-a-tete - such as whether North Korea would have to agree that its nuclear program was on the table before the United States would be willing to sit down.
The official said she has no major diplomatic activities planned during her visit, including a public speech, because the trip is to support the U.S. athletes, reaffirm the Korea-U.S. alliance and congratulate Seoul for its successful hosting of the Olympics.
"Pence on Thursday also pushed back on those who criticized him for not standing when the unified Korean team entered the opening ceremonies".
He is in charge of inter-Korean affairs and used to be head of military intelligence.
"The sister of Kim Jong Un is a central pillar of the most tyrannical and oppressive regime on the planet".
"The only reason that Kim Yong Chol, the main culprit of the Cheonan's sinking and other provocations against the South, should set his foot in the South should be to come clean on his crimes and kneel before" victims of the attacks and the South Korean people, said Rep. Jun Hee-kyung, a spokeswoman of the main opposition Liberty Korea Party, in a statement, Yonhap reported.
Sen. Jim Risch, R-Idaho, will be among those joining Ivanka Trump as part of the official US delegation, senior administration officials said Wednesday.
"Perhaps that's why they walked away from a meeting, or perhaps they were never honest about sitting down", Ayers said. "We will seek consensus from the global community on the need to create a virtuous cycle, in that improving inter-Korean relations could translate into finding a solution to the North's nuclear problem". The plan centers around rallying the worldwide community to further isolate North Korea both diplomatically and economically.
